was in a book meeting in washington d.c. and looked at what the president did last time and needs to do this time. >> it was clear from the beginning that there would beative resistance from the republicans he did. but at the same time, i think he could have done more with respect to setting the right tone and showing some leadership and these are two areas that he has to focus on in his second term . reaching out to the business community and listening. and reacting to what he's being told and successly as difficult as it sometimes is and almost all of you in the room who had experience working with congress, that's the nature of the system. >> steve: i hope the system changes a bit and we get some stuff done for the next two years. >> brian: that woman walked in front. >> steve: didn't she know we were watching. >> gretchen: what was a factor in the tuesday election or a side show. the man who advised gary johnson and third party candidates here next. >> steve: look at the pilot's plane. it crashes and caught on camera. you can watch it. don't distribute. ♪ ♪ than that though, the
's plans. and on the other side of the aisle, how will the gop handle the changing reality in washington. >>> meanwhile, breaking news tonight, the nor'easter bearing down on new york and new jersey tonight. just nine days after super storm sandy. new york city's death toll has risen today to 41 from sandy. and the airlines have been forced to cancel more than 1700 flights. we are live in one of the hardest hit areas. joining me now, top strategist, david axelrod. david, you must be feeling pretty chafed? >> yes, it was a great night, piers. to be in that room at mccormick place last night with that crowd and the sense of joy and idealism and patriotism, frankfully, that was evident in that room. and today the president came by the campaign headquarters and spoke to the young volunteers. not volunteers, but staff. and it was a very moving encounter. so this has been a tremendous 24 hours. >> when was the moment last night, if you're honest, that you thought, we got this, it's all going according to plan? >> when the vote started getting counted we knew quickly we have you know, we have a
. now that the elections are over, will washington do anything or will the town always on break continue to object structure, politicize and, of course, our favorite phrase kick that can down the road? the new washington is basically the same z the one before the election. the president is still obama, the senate is still solidly democratic and the house is republican, albeit by a small erma jort. three people in charge had this to say after the election. >> tonight you voted for action, not politics as usual. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we're ready to be led. not as democrats or republicans but americans. >> it's better to dance than to fight. it's better to work together. everything doesn't have to be a fight. >> i am looking forward to reaching out and working with leaders of both parties to meet the challenges we can only solve together. >> because the american people expect us to find common ground, we're willing to accept additional revenues via tax reform. >> legislation is the art of compromising and consensus building. >> despite all the frustrations of washington, i'
weak and there are no signs of improvement going into the s&p. melissa: the make up in washington for the next four years remains pretty much the same but the future is anything but status quo. lori: that was interesting. looming budget cuts threaten defense companies but one analyst says it could be a winner in all of this. and investment for you. we get a call with oppenheimer a little later. let's look at the metals. so much talk about the markets and obama victory and ben bernanke staying in place and another day of gains for gold, $10.20, $17.24, silver and copper high. we're back after this. [ male announcer ] this is steve. he loves risk. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks, ojumping into the marke hgoes with people he trusts, which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fees. so he can worry about other things, like what the market is doing and being ready, no matter what happens, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense, from td ameritrade. melissa: oil prices recovering from a
. >> caller: thank you. the people are so tired of the fighting in washington. like the one candidate said, if they don't do their job they do not get paid. we, the people come have got to start taking these matters into hands because we are sick of it. and, you know, what i would like to tell john boehner is don't give in to this craziness. this is nothing but craziness. and i watched harry reid yesterday. you know, he talked and he talked and he really said nothing. then he went on about dance, dance, dance and i thought to myself all you do is dance around with these bills that they send. the house will have a bill, they send it to the senate and what does he do? dances around it and never addresses it. >> host: know by partisanship than for you? >> caller: no, absolutely none. then when he left the stage and was walking off, the man -- i feel bad for him that he just can't get it together -- he grabbed ahold of the flag. he was falling. then he grabbed ahold of low wall and at that point i said uh oh that man needs to go home. he's too old to be there. he doesn't do his job and is coll
picture from the ronald reagan building in washington, where we will continue our live coverage of a post-election discussion and analysis, "cq" ."oll call live coverage starting at about 1 pop 45 eastern. while we wait, we're keeping an eye on tweeds that reporters are posting about the election. again, coverage of the "cq" "roll call" discussion coming up. right now, war on the election and what is next for congress on to de's "washington journal." reporter roundtable with margaret talev from bloomberg news and scott wilson from "the washington post." here is your special coverage from this morning. what is next? what is the first item for the second obama administration? guest: the first question is the so-called fiscal cliff, which no one wants the country to go over but no one as a way to fix. the president will spend most of the next year working on that. he will have staff issues to work on with turnover in his cabinet, and the senior levels in the west wing as well. things he will take on first. host: margaret talev, what did you hear from him wednesday about negotiations on the f
shift. i remember when i came to washington in the 1980s, people were writing an article, i wrote an article for -- i wrote an article for -- remember that carline bowman -- was that public opinion? >> yeah, yeah. >> on the block, the electoral law, that there was a republican electoral law. i think you'll probably start to see people talk about a democratic electoral lock due to these changing demographics. so the hispanic numbers picked up, and we are seeing an electric whether democrats democrats are doing well among african-americans, hispanics, asians, younger voters and white liberals. and that, that needle appears to have moved slightly to the democrats so that if you have a kind of normal base election, the democrats have a very slight advantage. i think most people will say we will continue to grow over time, unless the republicans do something to make inroads among what now are becoming some poor democratic constituencies, at least some. but if you look at the house races, you have to be cautious about the big message you are drawing. if the democrats again what looks to
, the group of people that we sent back to washington that have to work together, and now it is not a joke. there is no room for fighting any longer. all of this partisanship, the class warfare, the criticism of each other has got to go to the side. and i think that maybe that is what the selloff today is about. people are afraid it won't. what would be your rest see for lawmakers to come together and work together what is the first thing you would do? >> well i think there needs to be an honest appreciation and understanding of the objectives of the programs that the other side is putting out. there has to be an understanding on each party's part of the genuine cost that the other sees with their pet projects. and so that they can understand that, the nature of the tradeoffs, that could be accomplished, in a reasonable way. political ttadeoffs don't correspond to the kinds of economic tradeoffs that make compromise a more fulfilling process than one man getting his own. unfortunately the political process is dirtier business and it leaves people worse off in terms of the economic equation
in the senate, which is contrary to what anybody in washington, i think, thought, even as late as labor day. we know the house is going to stay roughly the same. absent breaking news, i bring you no precinct returns from florida. i'd like to spend more time on why this is happened, and what that means for us going forward. first, i share the admiration all around for president obama's campaign team. they were tech nickically close to perfect in the first responsibility of a campaign team, that is to identify and turn out voters. they planned it. they executed it. every step of the way, they knew what votes they needed, got out and got them. they began weeks before election day banking favorable votes in states where they had already had people on the ground preplabbed to produce. again, technically, a superb operation, one to set the standard for future campaigns and now you identify your voters, encourage them to turn out, and perhaps some people think by the fourth or fifth visit or phone call verging on harassment to turn themçó out, t it worked. the point i want to make beyond that, howev
the proposal on the deficit, went to george washington university to listen to the president gives his counterproposal, he vilified them. and it never stopped doing that for the next year-and-a-half of through the election. the big question is, when we heard from speaker painter, what exactly is going to be the president's opening bid? dagen: four years out, what do you expect to see in terms of social security, medicare, tax cut. >> i think it's going to be very difficult. if the republicans managed to do some of reach, public opinion. and in the election they did have -- romney did have support for his positions on medicare. that was not repudiate. the public does realize at this point that they need to reform those two entitlements. i think they have a basis, at least, for making that argument with president obama and the democrats, but it's going to be difficult. connell: talk about this more in the second with our next guest of about are you looking at the markets at all after yesterday, people being so uncertain about this whole fiscal cliff steel. not getting anything done last
conditions of declining public order. >> i guess there's a tradition in washington d.c. whenever one is asked about making a position come you make one of those predictions. the next 18 months are critical, something along those lines. going to do something very similar. >> that won't won't do it on the sunday morning talk show. >> what i'm going to say here as i think one thing our discussion has alluded to is between the presidency and egypt in a variety of bureaucratic entries. not just the military, but the deep state is going to be very critical. the question of whether he will call a will be extremely important. it's not just the question of that compensation we been waiting for between the president and the various bureaucratic powers, the president, particularly the military and security service. we also look at the relationship between the president and the ear of the muslim brotherhood. is there enough sufficient room for tension between the two sides in such an irreverent end up in a presidency can emerge clicks if that actually happens someday, that sort of the new ballgame in the
the president goes back to washington. he has the interim now between the lame duck status or you might argue before the inauguration and the old congress is still in power until inauguration takes place can he get anything done in this interim period? >> well, i think if the majority in the house want to get something done they can get something done we have a fiscal cliff being reached on january 1 with tax cuts expiring, a sequester going in effect. i don't think people can just ignore that. i know the president will not want to. we need to get our long term fiscal house in order so that the short term economic growth and activities and business can get back with some certainty to try and create jobs, increase their opportunities around the world. so i think if the president and congress want to they can get something done in the short term or at least get a framework they all agree on that then can get implemented possibly after the holidays. there's too much on the plate to wait until the new congress after january or the president gets regrated. >> rose: do you think the republicans are
